Feeling like crap... what is this? - updated

Last night, very late, my stomach decided to start emptying itself of ALL its contents. In the most efficient way possible. I'll just say that it's good to have a bucket by the toilet just in case this happens. I tried napping on the bathroom floor, as it's a lot closer to the toilet than my bed is, but discovered that at 38 weeks pregnant the floor is just not comfortable. It finally seemed to let up after an hour... I showered and went back to bed.

I slept fitfully for about four hours and now my stomach is doing its thing again, minus the puking and with a little less urgency.

Why am I telling you this? Well, because I have no idea what this is about. My first thought was "early labour sign" but I'm not so sure, based on how high Lumpy is and all.

I have a regular appointment with my doctor at 11:15 today. I guess we'll see what's going on then.

ETA: The verdict is... stomach flu. Ugh. I'm sucking back popsicles and ice chips. If I can keep them down today, I get to eat tomorrow.

You mean you still haven't had that kid? You must be huge by now!

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I just had to say it. But still, can you hurry up and pop out the baby. I am not a patient person.

There is a stomach bug that seems to be going around that doesn't last for long. Maybe that is what you are dealing with. Or maybe it is labour, you know, since you are so huge and all. :)

I hope you are feeling better. Everyone is sick around here. It is yucky to be sick and pregnant.

Early labour signs are usually things coming out the other end. Any chance you have food poisoning?

Gahhhhhhh, I am sick of Doctors, just sick of doctors. Lumpy doesn't have to drop just yet btw, it could happen all at once just a week before labour.

So that means you are still pregnant, right??

I know, you are going to kill me, I just feel like being a smart ass. :)

I do hope you feel better soon. Stomach flu sucks. For what it is worth, the people I know who have been hit with it have had pretty much 24 hours and that is it. I will hope that means you are done with the worst of it.

Sorry honey, I hope this gets better soon. Just keep sucking back those electrolytes.

But on another note....I just realized how close you are to meeting Lumpy and well I got all teary eyed and wanted to let you know that I'm so happy for you!!!!

I cant believe its already time! Any day now right!!??
